Scheffe`s test

In statistics, Scheffé`s Test, or Scheffé`s Method, named after Henry Scheffé, is a method for correcting for Type I error in analyses with multiple comparisons. It is particularly useful in analysis of variance, and in constructing simultaneous confidence bands for regressions involving basis functions.

Scheffé`s method is a single-step multiple comparison procedure which applies to the set of estimates of all possible contrasts.
